Upgrade from

I've been asked to upgrade a Magento installation due to malicious JavaScript injections constantly taking place. The installation is quite old at, unfortunately.


The main issue is that this version uses the old PEAR repositories to manage upgrades, and those are no longer available.

Here's an official upgrade guide from Magento which should be useful:
